The interpretation of Dreams
« on: June 14, 2009, 11:05:51 AM »
Devaraja Mudaliar in his entry dated 26th Feb 1946 in
Day by Day writes:

A visitor told Bhagavan:  "Even in my dream, I sometimes
feel that I am dreaming i.e. I am conscious that it is a
dream and that a fall there, for instance, cannot hurt
me and so on.  How is that?"

Bhagavan:

How can that be?  Even in a dream three must be hurt
consequent on a fall.  On the other hand, if you are aware
it is a dream, you are no longer dreaming.  At the best,
it may be the transition stage when you are awaking from
the dream state.

Another visitor told Bhagavan that some of his dream
experiences stood very firmly rooted in his mind, while
others were not remembered at all. 

Bhagavan remarked: 

"All that we see is a dream, whether we see it in the dream
state or in the waking state.  On account of some arbitrary
standards about the duration of experience and so on,
we all one experience a dream experience  and another a
waking experience. With reference to Reality, both the
experiences are unreal.
